[Audio] The Penelopes reMix We Have Band’s ‘Modulate’

We have Band


Indie-Electro juggernaut We Have Band released their new single Modulate last month. Taken from the British three-piece’s recent album Movements, the track, and it’s video, have already been hyped as hell. Now here comes our favourite French Londoners The Penelopes to deliver a storming retro Electro remix of the track that we are proud to première right here.

The Penelopes turn in a big chugging ElectroPop tune. Verging on Electro-Rock in places, the track is a powerhouse of driving synth bass and growling riffs. When the chorus hits, The Penelopes lighten things up a little with airy melodies and lush pads, before diving headfirst back into the B-Boy beats and relentless apreggios. The Penelopes are really expanding their sonic pallet recently; producing some awesome results. This ecclectic mix is just another feather in their cap.

Anoraak Vs. We Have Band

I love We Have Band’s deep, electronic, hypnotic reMix of Anoraak’s awesome current single ‘Try Me’.

Released this month ‘Try Me’ is a post-Dreamwave (if that even is a thing yet?), Indie tinged, ElectroPop monster of a tune. We Have Band strip it down to intertwining arpeggios, processed vocals and haunting guitar lines over a tribal drum track that hammers the tune into your brain!

Anoraak – Try Me (We Have Band reMix)

‘Try Me’ is out right now, ‘Wherever The Sun Sets’, being released 30th August.

We Have Band’s début album ‘WHB’ is out now!

TeenagersInTokyo are gearing up for the release of their début long player, ‘Sacrifice’, at the end of the month and are preceding it with the second single from the album.

‘End It Tonight’ originally featured on the bands début EP last year but is given new lease of life by a bunch of ace reMixes. We Have Band’s jittery percussion and four bar basslines shine through, the WHB sound actually works really well with Samantha Lim’s vocals. Nightschool are the next in a long line of ‘mystery’ acts to appear in the last couple of years. I’m sure people will have all kinds of theories as to who it is, I’m sure there will be loads of Gossip (ahem). Focusing on his reMix though, it’s got a nice New Wave vibe going on with a nice balance of bass & guitar to Synths, kinda’ gives the song more of a live feel too, which is nice.

Mystery men Monarchy have been busy with some high profile reMixes of late and we are glad to report that their track ‘Gold In The Fire’, which has been hyped for a while now, is finally getting an official release thanks to Neon Gold.

We Have Band, Flak Attack and Hidden Cat chip in with the reMix work that spans WHB’s almost tribal chilled Electro, Flak Attack’s pure dance jam and Hidden Cat’s psychedelic space Disco trip.
